The following day saw us heading down to a place called Don Det in the 4,000 Islands. We’d originally planned to stay for a while to get over the exertions of the previous few days. Unfortunately the place fell short of expectations and we only stayed one night. It could, and should, have been a great chill out place but it seems to be following the Vang Vieng school of tourism with lots of bars offering ‘Happy Shakes’ and playing non-stop techno at full volume. The guest house we stayed in was dirty, noisy and convinced us that one night was enough!
